☷ Nevada Department of Transportation Nevada - Deactivation of Traffic Signal Warning Signs on Pyramid Mt Rose Highways 12 April 2022

   CARSON CITY , Nev
    . – Beginning April 13 , a second phase of changes will come to flashing warning systems placed in advance of select traffic signals on Pyramid and Mt . Rose highways . The Nevada Department of Transportation is updating the warning signals to provide uniformity and promote safer driver behavior .  
   On April 13 and 14 , drivers will see brief shoulder and lane closures on Pyramid Highway between Calle de la Plata and Farr Lane , as well as lower Mt . Rose Highway in south Reno , as the flashing signs are deactivated .  
   April 13 - 14:
   intermittent daytime shoulder ( 6 a . m . - 9 p . m . ) and evening lane closures ( 9 p . m . - 6 a . m . ) will take place . At locations where advance signals are being removed , the flashing advance sign lights will be deactivated .  
   Mid - May:
   A third round of brief daytime shoulder and evening lane closures will take place . Outdated signals and signal poles will be completely removed after being replaced with road signs .
   In mid - March , select signs which previously flashed as the traffic signal ahead readies to change were updated to continuously flash . At locations where advance signal warning systems are being removed , the existing advance signs were first temporarily changed to continually flash to provide an additional visual reminder of the changes taking place , and remind motorists to remain aware of the changing traffic signage .
   All traffic signals will remain .  
   Known as advance signal warning systems , the signs are placed ahead of certain traffic signals . Some advance signal warning signs contain lights which continuously flash . Others begin flashing when the traffic signal ahead readies to turn yellow and red , allowing drivers time to prepare to stop in advance of a signal that has limited visibility .  
   Advance signal warning systems can assist drivers under certain circumstances , such as when visibility of the approaching traffic signal is limited or a traffic signal is unexpected or isolated . If the driver has adequate sight distance to view and safely stop at the signal ahead , the advanced warning system may no longer be necessary . In fact , it has potential to influence some drivers to unsafely speed up to "beat the light , " leading to crashes .  
   Red - light running is one of the most serious traffic problems in the nation . It is estimated that vehicles running red lights cause more than 200 , 000 crashes and approximately 900 deaths nationwide per year .  
   NDOT conducted an engineering study to establish guidelines for most effective use of the different types of signal warning systems , compliant with federal guidelines .
   To enhance traffic consistency and safety , the following advance signal warning systems will change:
   PYRAMID HIGHWAY
   Remove Advance Warning Signals
   Northbound at Calle de la Plata
   Northbound and Southbound at Eagle Canyon/La Posada Drive
   Northbound and Southbound at Wingfield Springs Road/Lazy Five Parkway
